THE STORY:

This April I will be running the Boston Marathon in memory of my cousin, Kevin Regan. Kevin lost his battle with Melanoma at age 35 in 2006. To all who were lucky enough to know him, Kevin was so full of life, so it was hard to believe when the Doctors told him to, "Go home and get his affairs in order". He fought his battle without one complaint! He is so very missed by his family. Especially by his parents, his wife Kristy and his twin brother Barry.

This will be my 13th Boston Marathon and my 9th year running for the Melanoma Foundation of NE!

Thanks to all of you how have donated in the past!

Since it's inception in 2006, Running for Cover has raised over $1 million to support MFNE. I am thirlled to be a part of this team for the 2013 Boston Marathon.

Help me cross the finish line by donating to my fundraising efforts. Together we can help reduce the incidents of Melanoma in the New England area.

 

Melanoma Foundation of New England wrote -

While we are forever changed by the events that took place on April 15, 2013 and the days that followed, we will not let this define our experience. Before the tragedies on Marathon Monday, Team Running for Cover was already a remarkable group of individuals who came together to take on the challenge of the marathon and raise money for a cause they are passionate about.  They are now forever bonded, pulling together as teammates – and now friends – they supported each other and never waivered in their dedication to the team’s mission. 

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.
